Unstructured institution with precarious contracts

A wonderful job experience
Working at the university is one of the best decisions I have made. The work environment is peaceful. Would recommend people to apply as a tutor. You gain so much more than just teaching experience.

Ability to learn/ benefits
Within my role I was empowered to determine work flows and manage on a day to day basis. This was done with Technical supervisor input as well as academic staff. No specific role training as I brought these to the position. University updated me with first aid, HR practises, workplace health and safety etc.
